England keeper coy on transfer talk

Birmingham City goalkeeper Jack Butland admits he has no idea where his future lies amidst financial problems surrounding his current club.

The Blues remain in a difficult situation after their assets were frozen last summer due to money laundering charges brought against chairman Carson Yeung.

This has added fuel to speculations linking the talented keeper with a switch to the Premier League, and Butland is aware his future is not entirely in his own hands.

“You can talk about it, but there’s nothing we can do about it as players,” Butland confessed to Daily Mirror.

“We can only control what we do on the pitch and what we do on the training ground.”

Butland is clearly club’s most sought-after player after he impressed for Great Britain at the 2012 Summer Games.

Southampton even had a bid rejected for the 19-year-old in the summer, while Everton are also believed to be interested.

The talented keeper, who showed a lot of promise during two loan spells at Cheltenham, has started all 13 Championship games for the Blues this season, conceding 21 goals in the process.
